Notes/Commercial Description:
Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of pale, crystal and chocolate malts. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate toffee-like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale but has gained a huge loyal following and has become one of our flagship brews.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes taken about two weeks ago. Served at Springs Orleans in Colorado Springs. I first had this beer many, many years ago in Biloxi, MS and have had it off-and-on throughout these years.

Dark yet clear amber body with a very thin tan head. Nothing distinctive in the smell -- slightly sweet malt notes; no discernible hop presence. Taste came across roasty and nut-like with a slight bitterness. Light, clean, dry mouthfeel.

Served too cold which probably explains the lack of appreciable aroma. Flavor saves this beer, brings out a distinctiveness and decent taste. Served at a proper ale temp may bring about a better rating, but a good enough beer as presented. and liked it then. I'm sure the quality and potential for a more favorable impression remains; I'll have to review it served from a 12 oz bottle.

Serving type: on-tap
